Wedding dress budget

Angel, on January 28, 2020 at 1:53 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 1 69

What's everyone's budget for your wedding dress? Or, if you've already found the one... How much was it?


Torn between "it's only one day, why spend so much" and "it's only one day, might as well." LOL

Trying to decide if I want to spend the money on my dream dress, Martina Liana 1059.

    My original budget was $600, but my mom surprised me by telling me they wanted to pay for it. So my dress ended up being $898 and I love it.

    I went into David's Bridal knowing I didn't want to spend more than 1300...and walked out having spent 1400. Whoops.

    My original budget was $600 too but then I pushed it to $1000. Originally thought it was only one day why spend so much money on a dress and I’m only gonna wear ones. And I’m kind of a tomboy so wearing a dress is not normally my thing. But once I put on this $1300 dress well you guessed it... lol But seriously once I put it on I said here’s my car charge it! I wouldn’t give up my dress for anything!Wedding dress budget 1

    I had a tiny budget aha maybe $300 at most but I luckily only spent $30 because I found that I could find an evening gown that's white that's bridal looking.

    My Budget was $2400 WITH alterations ended up finding my dress for around $1800 including tax. Still waiting on my dress to come in to see what kind of alterations I will need to during my first fitting! Smiley smile

    My budget was $250, but I was willing to go up to $500. My mom found my dress and gifted me $500 for it. Alterations cost $500. It would've been a total of $1000 including alterations.

    My budget was $1,000 with alterations. The first dress I bought was just under $650. I returned it because it wasn't the right choice and ended up ordering another one for $350 and only paid $50 for alterations.

    My budget was $2000 and my dress was $1200 before alterations and probably just under $1400 after.

    My budget was 200. Got it on sale for black Friday. Cost me 374. I paid 200, my FMIL paid the 174. So it helped me out!

    My ideal budget is $600(which I feel is unrealistic for my expensive taste), but I fell in love with a dress I've been eyeing for A LONG WHILE. It's $2,599. But it's truly my dream dress. I found it online brand new, never worn for $1,500. Not sure if I should go for it or not! I feel like we're doing the bare minimum for a lot of things, I don't want my dress to be another thing I "settle" for.
